JusT NOT FeeliNg my Best

JUsT not Feeling My BesT

It’s one of THOSE days. Foot drop is really P…..g me off. Balance has taken an unexpected vacation. And to top it off, I get to go to every lady’s favorite doctor visit tomorrow morn.

Yep. It’s mammo time for Lisa. Yeehaw!

Look at that technician smiling like this is the most fun ev-er. Or is she laughing ‘cause that’s not her mammary being pancaked at early o'clock in the morning?

So, with March going out like a lion tonight (71 degrees yesterday, snow forecast tomorrow), this is my April Fools Day gift.

Not funny.

But, seriously, getting a mammogram is probably one of the most important medical tests.

Don’t forget to schedule yours. Because of COVID, mine has been re-scheduled twice. If you have had one of the vaccines, this article may interest you. I had my second vaccine in mid-February, so I think I’m safe to proceed.

Doctors urge women to delay mammogram until 4–6 weeks after COVID-19 vaccine

Today might be the last day of MS Awareness Month, but it’s not the last day of my life with the MonSter. I’m gonna keep on keeping on.

Don’t forget the ABCs for Good Mental and Emotional Health Dr. Adam Kaplin has taught us:

  1. ASK for assistance when you need it.
  2. Remember to take BREAKS.

3. COMMUNICATE your needs and thoughts.

4. DON’T do things that make your symptoms worse.


6. FIND your purpose in life.


8. Have FUN!

9. IDENTIFY quick resources for wellness.

Abiding by this advice won't eliminate the MonSter, but it should weaken its power.

  1. Has anyone used CBD before? I am especially keen to get some Vegan CBD Gummies for depression. Can someone recommend a trusted CBD brand? I am currently contemplating [url=]JustCBD[/url] and Eco Sciences. Thanks in advance cbd oil gummies

  2. I have used 750 fullspectrum tincture by Hempworx and it initially seemed to smooth out the rough edges faced during the day. Recently a new CBD Reserve opened near me. I tried the gummies and have to admit that I only ate one half of a gummie and hated the experience. It totally relaxed me but I no longer felt in control. This depressed me further. I'll stick with the tinctures for now.

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a


Week two of my latest MS  extinction adventure.. CBD oil. What exactly is it supposed to do? I'm told that individuals who imbibe in one form or another experience less physical pain and possibly a calming sense of self. Some have also tossed one or more or many to all of their prescribed medications in favor of CBD,  My biggest question is "How do you know which of the table cover of pills do you eliminate?" I am  not much of a dare devil any more and my pocketbook isn't equipped for extensive experimentation. remember I have a college freshman to support. (Oh, and he's doing fine so far; Thanks for asking. More about that later.) It makes the most sense to me to play with the mood maintenance first. I take 50 MG of Sertralin each night before bed. It is fairly good at keeping me on an even keel. I've missed doses before and it becomes crystal, as in clear, after twenty four hours that my system is missing something.
